Emoji Challenge at Heart 2 Heart

Posted on

Hello Friends!

This week at Heart 2 Heart our theme is EMOJIS!  Close To My Heart has a very cute emoji stamp set that unfortunately I didn’t order, so I decided to use a Cricut emoji cut instead.  Sometimes I have a bit of a wacky sense of humor so this is what I came up with!  Please don’t judge!!

This card has Prickly Pear paper and Lemon, Emerald, Black, Chocolate and Cranberry cardstock.  I used the Artistry cartridge to create the speech balloon and the sentiment banner.  I know just the perfect person to receive this card and I hope he gets a chuckle from all this silliness!

Please stop over to Heart 2 Heart to see the other, probably more traditional (HA!) interpretations of EMOJIS by the design team members.  Then get crafting and create your own emoji project.  We would love to have you share your artwork with us!

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!  Laurie


It’s a Fiesta at H2H!

Hello Friends!

This week at Heart 2 Heart, we are celebrating FIESTA style and the challenge is to create a project with a fiesta theme.  For my design team project, I created a layout using the new Prickly Pear paper collection and Complements from Close To My Heart.  I added a couple of southwestern cuts from the Fiesta Cricut cartridge.  A sprinkling of Prickly Pear sequins added a bit of sparkle to the bright, beautiful colors in this paper collection.

Be sure to stop by Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects with a FIESTA theme.  Then we would love it if you’d play along and share your artwork with us!

Have an awesome day!   Laurie


We’re All About Ribbon at Heart 2 Heart!

Hello Friends!

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is to use RIBBON on a project.  I chose to use the brand new Little Dreamer paper collection for my card.  I think the diagonal rainbow pattern is just perfect as the background.  I used one of the Picture My Life cards for the sentiment panel and stamped the word LOVE from the Hello Lovely Scrapbooking stamp set (retired).  I added layers of Lagoon cardstock and of course, a bow made from Blossom ribbon from the Whimsy collection.

Please stop by Heart 2 Heart and check out the other design team projects.  I can tell you there is some really awesome artwork there!  You are always welcome and encouraged to link up your own projects using RIBBON this week because we love it when you share!

Have an awesome week!   Laurie


Everything’s Coming Up Roses!

Hello Friends!

Today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card I made for the Heart 2 Heart Challenges design team with the fabulous Live Beautifully paper collection from Close To My Heart.  This paper is only available during the month of May for National Scrapbook Month and is just perfect for Mother’s Day!

I used the recently retired Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge to create the rose card base from Black cardstock.  This cartridge is officially retired, but can still be purchased from the Going Soon section of the CTMH shopping site.  I simply layered the beautiful rose print paper beneath the black base, added a sentiment panel and a bow of Black and Gold ribbon.  Presto–a quick and easy, yet quite dramatic card for a special mother!

I hope you can stop by the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog to see the other design team projects with Roses.  Lots of great inspiration for sure!

All Creatures Great and Small

Posted on

Hello Friends!

At Heart 2 Heart this week the challenge is All Creatures Great and Small.  I decided to pull out a stamp set called Circus Birthday (B1533) from the Annual Inspirations catalog that I had never used.  It has some very cute creatures that I think fit this challenge perfectly!

I used the Some Kinda Wonderful paper collection to make this cute birthday card for a child, or a child at heart!  The cute little tiger image is colored with Shin Han markers.  I love how the black cardstock really sets off the vibrant colors of this paper collection.  Bet you just can’t help but smile!

Please stop over to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog and see the other projects made by the Design Team about All Creatures Great and Small.  Then link up your own artwork for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!   Laurie

It’s Tea Time at Heart 2 Heart!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

It’s Tea Time this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  It’s the perfect challenge to spotlight the March Stamp of the Month called “Tea-riffic”.  I decided to pair it up with the cute Sugar Rush paper collection and then wanted to make something different than a regular card.  So I looked on You Tube for some tutorials on making a tea bag holder–there sure are lots of them!!  What do you think?

Along with the Tea-riffic Stamp of the Month, I used the Sugar Rush Cardmaking Thin Cut Bundle (includes stamps and coordinating Thin Cuts both–25% off this month) for the cute donut that keeps the teabag holder closed.

The tea bag holder is made so that it can stand up by itself.  I have a friend who loves to drink tea and I think this will make the perfect little birthday treat for her!

Please stop by Heart 2 Heart Challenges and check out the other Tea Time projects that the design team created this week.  Then link up your own projects so we can all be inspired!
